Bound for Glory 2005 was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, which took place on October 23, 2005 from the TNA Impact! Zone in Orlando, Florida. It was the first event under the Bound for Glory chronology. Ten professional wrestling matches were featured on the event's card. The show was dedicated to Reggie "The Crusher" Lisowski, who died the night before.
Unlike previous TNA pay-per-views (except their first three-hour pay-per-view in November 2004, Victory Road), a paid ticket was made available at the TNA website, which purchased both entry into a pre-show experience on October 22 at a Doubletree hotel near Universal Studios, and priority seating for Bound for Glory, Universal Studios' audience participation policy prohibiting actually charging for admission to the show.
